    Beat me to it.

    I know the price is high...but I seriously think I will end up with one of these. Gotta reward the manufacturers who take chances like this. This thing will rip.

    That’s a steep price at 9k+. That better be a ex400 killer at a price like that:D

    I wouldn’t buy one at that price, but major kudos to Kawasaki for having the balls to release something like this. Looks like a hoot!

    At 250cc's unless it goes "ring-ding-ding-ding-ding" when you twist the throttle, I ain't interested. Although to be fair, if its anything like this was, then maybe they've got something to work with here. 18K rpm redline I think this was. I do think the price point is too high, but it would be cool to see if this re-invigorates the other big 3 to make inline-4 250's rather than twin 250-400's.

    An inline-4 400 would be kick-ass. But if this could be a spearhead to unify the entry level displacement stuff for like Junior Cup and international classes that would be pretty kickass. 20,000rpm and 50hp is already better than the 300-400cc twin's are making right out of the box. With some tuning will be interesting to see what these I4 250's are capable of since I imagine they are restricted to Euro5 standards.

    I've ridden the old CBR250rr and it's a hoot. As someone that has raced a ZXR400 for years I'd love to see a new model but this will be a very fun ride.

    Yea, 250CC I4 to 600CC to 1L for WSBK makes my OCD feel way better than the mix of 300s/400s we have right now in the little bike class.

    I hope they bring this to the US. Even if they have to choke it with a reduced power mode (two separate keys) and 6 cats, it would still be a pretty unique track bike.

    Is that price correct? That's pretty much the same price as the ZX-6. With that in mind I don't think it'll be in the US if that's true.

    All pricing is speculation right now.

    While I was in the military overseas I had a GSXR400. I hit red the line every day, kept it outside, thrashed it unmercifully at every opportunity. For such a high strung little motor it was amazingly resilient and stupid fun. Kind of sounded like a very loud angry mosquito when it was tacking 14500. If I was young and small I would love another one. EDIT: Oh yeah is was really quite fast sort of, it would go over a 100 pretty quick, then it would go more but there was no quick.

    You mean, something like the Honda CB400SF I4 that is currently produced for Japan and other markets?
